How to enter dealer mode and diagnostics

Hosted by vstrom.info Thanks to JonofChar

In User Mode, which is the normal running mode, if an FI error occurs you will see the "FI" letters displayed in the odometer readout area. If the FI is alternated every 2 seconds with an odometer readout & the Red FI lamp on the dash is on solid, the bike will start and run in fail-safe mode. If the odometer readout is FI & the Red FI light lamp is blinking, the bike will not start.


Dealer Mode:
An FI error will be memorized in the ECU when & error is present. This error will stay in the ECU as long as power is not removed from (battery disconnected or ECU unplugged) the ECU and the error has not been cleared. It should be noted, that if an FI error is intermittent, the error code should be checked before the bike is turned off. Carry a spare key & a jumper so the seat can be removed and Dealer Mode entered while bike is still running. As soon as a error is cleared it is removed from ECU memory.


Note: You can run the bike as normal when in dealer mode. So if you are dealing with an intermittent problem, wire it for dealer mode and ride. The code will show when the FI light is on. If the error clears, so will the code.



The Dealer Mode connector for all DL1000's & all NON-ABS DL650's is located under the left rear fairing next to the ECU. The following photo shows the 2 Strom diagnostic connectors. The smaller one with a soft rubber cover is the dealer mode plug.

Dealer Mode connector for K7 & onward ABS DL650's is forward under the rear of the tank. The ABS (not engine) dealer mode connector is in the rear where the normal connector is on other Stroms.

Dealer mode is entered by placing a jumper on two of the wires in this plug. The 02-03 DL1000 has a 4 pin plug with only two wires.

The 04 & up DL1000 & all DL650 have a 6 pin plug with four wires. In all cases, the White/Red & Black/White wires are the ones you will jumper to enable dealer mode. In the 6 pin plug they are the ones on the end. Use a paper clip, a piece of wire or everything that is conductive that will fit.

Once the jumper is in place dealer mode is entered. The FI error code(s) will be displayed in the odometer readout (k2 & K3) & clock readout (for all K4 & up) area of the LCD panel when the ignition is on, engine running or not. If more than one error is in place it will change every 2 seconds to display all codes. -C00 is the normal readout as shown below. The jumper can be inserted with ignition on or off.
